The author Jan Haddam has definitely defined the mediocrity of a very rich, gated suburbia community in "Blood in the Water". The community gives a false sense of security. Everything is in order until a murder happened and everyone in the community is not who they seemed. Martha Heydrich was eccentric with the color pink, disappeared on the day Michael Platte and an unknown body were found burned beyond recognition. The body was assumed to be her until the DNA results came back. Ex-FBI agent Gregor Demarkian was hired by the small community police to solved the murder.

I started with figuring out who was the murderer when the story hit a bump and started to wondering if I have the wrong suspect in mind. The story does give a background to all of the suspects. The reader will be surprised how many of them are hiding their identities and backgrounds and will learn a thing or two about forensic evidence.

Blood in the Water is a very good crime novel especially for those who wants to figure the who, what, how, and why. The evidences are there. It is a question on how to place the pieces of the puzzle together.
